Erin is an outstanding instructor. She is very, very knowledgeable. I have a pattern and it was poorly written. She was able to untangle it and explain it to me so that I can work on it independently. She is very patient. I would highly recommend her to anyone learning knitting, stuck on a pattern, or want to expand on their knitting skills. She has a lot of knowledge and can explain and impart this knowledge very well. She is a truly great instructor.

About A.J.

I've been playing piano for 27 years, and I've been a touring musician & recording artist for 15 years.

I can teach anything about any keyboard or synthesizer: piano, organ, rhodes, analog synths, digital synths, software synths, Ableton Live, midi setup, production, beat making with midi, and the list goes on.

I'm also a trained vocalist. I can teach vocal lessons, but each student has specific needs vocally, so let me know what your goals are for your voice. Recording? Live performance? Just would like to sing better, but no specific goals?

I can teach songwriting, production, arranging, and how to be in a rock band. I have a wide range of experience in the industry, so I can teach anyone how to go beyond their instrument, and develop their music further into full compositions either by on their own, or with a band.

I've ta

ught professionally for 4 years at Band Aid School of Music in Austin, Texas.

I've released multiple professional albums, and I have countless hours of experience in multiple professional recording studios, including my own.

I've toured all across the United States, Canada, U.K., and mainland Europe.

About Dr. Suman

My name is Dr. Suman (pronounced Simone). I have my own Health Coaching practice at Medicinal Nutrition DR, LLC

I have a doctorate in nutrition (clinical/medical). I am also a certified health coach, weight management specialist, and my training was specialized in working with overweight and obese individuals from all walks of life.

I have been a health professional for ten plus years and I have been offering health education for about the same time. I am very passionate about health and wellness and feel deeply sad when I see individuals struggling to become healthy and therefore resorting to diet fads or worse, struggling in silence. I think that knowledge is power only when you use it! Therefore, I decided to use my clinical and medical knowledge, education, and certification's to coach other like minded individuals about healt

h and wellness.

We all need a coach or a guide who can allow us to thrive and shine while, helping us navigate the rough waters effortlessly. In these times, while it may be easy to "google" something and find answers you may want to hear, not all of these answers are authentic or individualized for your personal health needs. Having a coach, guide, a support system, and an accountability factor all bundled in one, now, I doubt google can do that for you:) I pride in being compassionate, empathetic, and patient- all the qualities you may need in a mentor and a health professional!

I hope I am able to connect with you and share my passion for health and wellness while, at the same time, educate you and empower your journey!

I am also trained as a life coach, weight management specialist, and a mindfulness/meditation instructor-educator. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions before you wish to get started.

Lastly, I am a certified tarot reader, if you are looking to understand how to read tarot cards and grow spiritually, please get in touch with me.

A friendly disclaimer: I am not offering any health or medical advice, diagnosis, or treatments through this platform. My goal is to strictly only provide health coaching and nutrition education. Please contact me if you are interested in learning and becoming educated about health and wellness. I also do not offer or provide any related certifications upon completion of your personal program with me, this is purely an educational platform.

Dr. Suman is an awesome person!! She is so patient and is so knowledgeable in her field. Her passion for helping people live their healthiest life is undeniable. I loved working with her and I am living a healthier life without having to restrict my eating, counting calories, or following fad diets.

Dr. Suman is one of the most amazing people I have worked with. Her knowledge in the field is unmatched, but, I loved working with her because she is patient, kind, very compassionate, and will do all it takes to help her students. Please work with her if you are looking for someone to help you get off the diet cycle and learn to eat for your health. She does not stand for fads and will help you see results.

About Samuel

I am a law student currently looking to do some extra work and make a little money on the side. I began to crochet about three and a half years ago, picking up a how-to book, a hook, and some yarn from my local Micheals. I wanted something to do with my hands while watching TV aside from playing Minecraft for the thousandth time, and crochet became the answer.

Crochet is an excellent hobby, especially for a person with ADHD like myself. It allows me to occupy my hands when doing something else, while at the same time creating creative and useful. It can also be a great stress reliever, allowing you to get lost in the repetitive, almost mindless motions of the hook and yarn.

I look forward to meeting with you and passing on the knowledge I have acquired.

About Daniel

I love teaching pool, especially to total beginners. I’ve developed some unique training games that help you make rapid progress while having lots of fun. It’s got to be fun!! For that reason, I’m great teaching groups at parties.

Over a decade ago, I got myself a job as co-editor of what became a big seller in the pool world, Phil Capelle’s “Play Your Best 8-Ball.” In late 2015, the Professional Billiard Instructors Association granted me the rank of Recognized Instructor.

Please note: Lesson prices INCLUDE payment for my "table time." it's not extra; it's included.

I can’t tell you how much how gratifying it is to see students progress rapidly, scoring points, pocketing balls, and having a high quality experience. My students think of me as a very patient teacher, willing to go over things many times. Take a lesson with m

e and you won’t regret it.

Very interesting person who raised my interest multiple times throughout the lesson. Also taught me the mastery of an important fundamental of billiards that I looked past

My friend and I were just playing a game of 8 ball and Dan suggested a game call loop . We were impressed at how much we learned about the tangent line and how we had to focus at where the ball had to go in order to stay at the table. Dan really improved my game with just 3 hours of lesson today. He also showed us 2 other games and both required us to play differently and it made us focus on cue ball control. I was smiling each time as if I discovered fire. Dan would walk us through why and how. I had a great time If i have time to play again i would call dan no doubt.

"AWESOME I so enjoy working with Karen! In advance of today’s lesson, we coordinated re work on a summer shawl Project. We both thought a summer shawl ad
dressing those summer air conditioned restaurants was a good project for folks like me that travel a bunch and need take along projects. With Karen’s guidance in mind, I bought gthe yarn. Then Karen showed me 6-9 different shawls she’s made so I could pick target shawl pattern that wasn’t above my ability and appealed to me. I’m now on my way; 3+Rows in and feeling confident of noteworthy progress til next session."
